French Onion Dip
We realize today is Valentine's Day, and French Onion Dip isn't the most romantic recipe. That being said, we aren't currently paid to blog our recipes, so you get them after the event occurred. Plus, we each have other jobs, so the turn around time isn't as quick as it should be.
Super Bowl day is all about snacking for us, not a huge meal. Again, this isn't necessarily the most healthy recipe, but we tried to lighten it up where we could. This is probably ten times healthier than what you would buy pre-made from the grocery store.
Here's what you need:
1 medium sweet onion
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp Kosher salt
1 1/2 cups light sour cream
3/4 cup olive oil mayonaisse
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1 bag lightly salted potato chips
Here's what you do:
Heat a 10" skillet over medium heat and add the oil to the pan.
Meanwhile, dice up the onion.
Let the onion caramelize for about 20 minutes.
Combine the sour cream, mayo, pepper, salt, and garlic powder in a medium bowl.
Add the caramelized onions.
And, that's pretty much it. Throw it in the fridge for at least a couple of hours, or overnight.
We actually transferred this to a fancy bowl for the super bowl, but with all the excitement, we forgot to take a picture. We served it with lightly salted potato chips and cold beer.
